John Wright, center, Democratic candidate for the 47th House District, moves hay into the trailer with his father, John Riddick, right, and neighbor Scott Cooper, left, on Oct. 7. Wright and Riddick move hay from the family's farm in Howard County to feed the horses that Wright keeps on his land north of Midway. Cooper is a neighbor to the family farm and helps to work Riddick's land. Every year, Wright's extended family gathers at the farm overlooking the Missouri River for Thanksgiving.
